Re: Forget Quicktime, what about CAD [TANKS]

I finally got a decent CAD program (bentley microstation) and printed the
files (as pdf). I uploaded them here in case anyone else would like to use
them. http://www.cs.drexel.edu/~adt22/tank/files/ There are two versions
there (both pulled from http://www.gjames.com.au/chris/index.html)
Be careful about using the version2 files, I think the track dimensions are
off. The drive sprocket doesn't fit inside the track circle.
I think I might give up on the roller sprocket idea and go with a tts2 for
now. Steve (or Chris), any chance of getting a printout of the tts2 hub?
If not I'll use my newly acquired CAD software to sketch one up (1" slots,
11 sides, tooth: 3/8" x 1/4", right?)
